History Other Times & Places Visions. Charles Ives: Piano Sonata No. 2 ("Concord, Mass. 1842-1860"); Aaron Copland: Piano Sonata.

Charles Ives: Piano Sonata No. Composed By. Aaron Copland. January 10, 1991 - January 12, 1991.

Aaron Copland's Piano Sonata comes chronologically from the very heart of his "vernacular" period, but bears little stylistic resemblance to the works around it. The opening sketches date from June 1939, just after Copland had completed the incidental music he would later fashion into the tone poem Quiet City. Copland studied sonata form extensively with Rubin Goldmark in Cleveland as a youth, and sticks to standard sonata-allegro form very definitely in this sonata, varying the opening Molto Moderato with appropriate contrast and periods of roughly equal length. The Scherzo vivace alternates abrupt, jazz-derived ideas with a slower, more relaxed trio section. The final Andante sostenuto departs from standard sonata form, in that it takes its basic working material from the second movement Trio and consists of static chords, giving an impression of immobility, like a clock winding down.
